Debian :: Printer Remains Idle?

May 17, 2011

This is my first day with Debian, I have used other distros, and am a long time linux user. My HP D 1600 series is recognized, but when I try to print a test msg. it says sent, but the printer remains idle. I have tried everything I know. When I run the trouble shooter I get this. /// /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp failed////

In the past when having a printer problem I have installed HPLIP-gui and removed the printer then re-installed it. That has not worked and I cannot even remove the printer.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Connect To Printer Wirelessly - Error Idle "Connecting To Printer"

Jun 23, 2011

I am unable to connect to my printer wirelessly. I get this: Idle - "Connecting to printer..." The computer never connects. I can print a configuration report and get the ip address. If I type that in a webrowser, I get an error: unable to connect. Even if I plug the printer into the computer by a usb, I am unable to access the printer's ip address in the webrowser. I'm not sure how to proceed on getting the printer working wirelessly. It is a hp 6940 I use the HP Deskjet 6940 Series hpijs, 3.10.2rc1.9 driver. I have only recently been having printer problems. The printer has been hooked up on the same network for years. It still prints via usb.

Ubuntu :: Printer Idle - Job Prints Like 5 Min Later

Apr 27, 2011

I have an HP J4680 all in one that, for some reason, does not process the print job immediately when I send it. When I open my printer's properties it will list the printer's state as idle and when I go into the print que it tells me the job is scheduled for . . . (some time) which is, I think, about 5 min later by the clock on the task bar. I've been all over the settings and don't see anything that looks like it applies to that. Usually I've been restarting the printer and computer and then it will print when I send the job. Tonight I waited until the time and it did print according to the scheduled time. I need to find a way to always have it print right when I send the job.

Fedora Hardware :: HP PSC 1200 Series Over Network - Printer State Idle

Dec 4, 2009

F12 64 bit machine, connects to a Windows share to which a HP PSC 1210 is connected through a USB connection. Printer is set to share, nicknamed "Asterix". When the printer is set up through F12, I select under Network printer "Windows printer via Samba". I browse, find the printer, and click verify. The printer is accessible. Then I finish the installation, ordering a test print. Here the strange things start happening (attached some screenshots to back the story up).

1) No error messages appear that I can find. No cups-errors, no other errors pop up on the F12 machine. The print appears and disappears from the "Document Print Status (Asterix)" window. Only on the Printer Properties page do I see something strange: Printer state: Idle - procession page 2.
2) In the Windows machine, I also can't find any error messages. The print appears in the Printer list, and stays there. The printer comes to life, checks its cartridges, rolls some wheels, and then decides to do nothing more. When I select the print and click on Properties, the default priority is 1, but when I move it up to 99, nothing changes. The only strange thing here is, that the document, according to the Windoze machine, has 0 pages, yet is some 20MB.
And nothing ever happens.

Things I think it's not:
Firewall issue. The print obviously slips through to the other end.
Faulty driver issue. Directly from the Windoze machine, and if plugged into the USB of the F12 machine, does it print perfectly fine.

Debian Installation :: When Connect The Printer, Doesn't Recognize Printer As The Photosmart B109 Printer For Unknown Reason?

Jan 3, 2011

I've bought a HP Photosmart printer, HP Photosmart wireless e-All-in-One printer - B110a and i've got a problem installing it properly. I'm using Debian 6.0 Squeeze. When i connect the printer, Debian doesn't recognize my printer as the Photosmart B109 printer for unknown reason. When i go to the site of HP and search for a driver, it directs me to this site:I've downloaded that latest hplip file as a .run file and installed it. My printer is recognized proparly, but when i try to print a colored image, it comes out black/white. Something is not crrect. Does anyone recognize this problem with this type HP printer?

Debian :: System Remains Sluggish After Heavy CPU Use

Jun 11, 2011

I have a problem with my Debian squeeze system. After I have run some CPU-intensive application for a while the system becomes sluggish. Ok, maybe one would expect that. But. The system remains sluggish even after that process has been killed and then top shows high cpu usage from unrelated processes and a high %sy percentage as well. I don't really know where to begin solving this problem except I've checked that this is specifically related to (at least) CPU use as opposed to heavy memory use or IO (by running an application with low mem/no io but high cpu use). I am running the latest standard kernel from squeeze, 2.6.32-5-686. Also, thing is, I remember having similar problems with other Linux distros before, where for example gzipping a large file would cause the same. I did not have similar problems on {Net,Open}BSD, so a hardware fault seems an unlikely reason to me.

I'm having a problem with krusader. When I open and close it, it remains with a sleep status. This can be verified by the system monitor and by the "ps aux". The krusader only go away if I use killall. This is occurring in more than one machine. I'm using squeeze gnome 64 bits.

Debian Multimedia :: X Broken After Update - Screen Remains Black

Dec 20, 2010

So I'm pretty awful at keeping Debian up to date, I guess. I'm using cron-apt to fetch updates every night, then apply them whenever I get around to it. Well, I neglected that last part for a month or two, and after some routine downtime to clear the case of dust, I decided it was time to upgrade. So I ran the command, everything checked out fine, and I was on my merry way. Until a half-hour ago when I accidentally shutdown the computer (I use the same zsh prompt on each computer, so I got them confused.) I turned it back on, only to be greeted with a black screen after all the services started up.

Everything works: ircd, MPD, etc. EXCEPT, of course, X. At first I thought the update broke SLIM, but after checking htop and doing a killall slim, it doesn't appear to be running (the screen remains black.) I hit Control-Alt-f2 to get to get back to a terminal, then tried doing startx, which freezes the computer entirely. All the network services stop, I can't SSH in, etc. It's dead. If I'm not mistaken, Xorg.0.log should say something, but I'm not a huge expert on it. The last line isn't an error, I can tell you that. So what's the deal here? apt-get remove xorg and start over?

Debian Multimedia :: Screen Remains Black After Sleep Mode

Feb 20, 2011

I recently came to Debian. As I have an ati card, I tried the proprietary drivers first, but then came back to radeon (open-source). In the process, I think I may have broke my xorg.conf . Sometimes, when the monitor goes into sleep mode, when I came back, the screen remains black (sometimes I see just the cursor).

Here is my xorg.conf
# NOXORGCONFEXISTED: No configuration file existed when this backup was created.

Also, I have lots of backups in my X11 folder, like xorg.conf.fglrx-3, xorg.conf.original-1, or backup.xorg.conf. Is it safe to remove them? What should I do about the main xorg.conf?

General :: CPUs Keep Toggling Between 100%idle And 0% Idle

Mar 22, 2011

When I run top d 0.5 on my machine and I press 1 to enable the SMP View, I notice that all of the CPUs keep toggling between 100%idle and 0% idle.

The odd part is that when a CPU goes to 0.0% idle, I would expect to see one or more of the other columns peek, but they are not.

What is causing this?

Debian :: Create Own Self-signed SSL Certificate To Ensure The Basket Area Remains Secure?

Dec 27, 2010

Things beyond my control are causing me to rush a bit in getting the website moved. I'm working hard to try and get it done, but something else has come up that SSL Certificate.I know that our website's "basket" area is protected by an SSL certificate to ensure customer information, especially credit info, is secure. With the move to Amazon's service, it looks like I may need to create our own self-signed SSL certificate to ensure the basket area remains secure.

I have found guides that walk through how to make one yourself and configuring apache to allow it, but something else has come to mind. The guides I found don't really indicate where the SSL certificate goes afterwards, and also doesn't suggest which sections should be governed by the certificate (as only the basket section uses it, not anything else). How would I find out that information?

Ubuntu :: Printing - Print Job Shows The Printer Status As "idle" And The Print Queue Is Empty

Jul 15, 2011

Our one remaining problem seems to be printing. She has an HP OfficeJet 6500 USB printer. We have the computer conntected. Strangely, when I boot from the CD the printer shows up as installed even though I did nothing to install it. After having submitted a print job it shows the printer status as "idle" and the print queue is empty. I tried deleting that printer and re-installing. The installation went as one would expect. However the results are the same. I'm beginning to think that somehow the problem is related to the fact that we are operating from the live CD. getting this thing to print from the live CD.

Debian :: Load On Idle System

Nov 2, 2015

I had noticed that my workstation (running debian testing) is having a constant load of about 0.9 (+/-0.1), even while the system is completly idle.The system starts with a normal load and then goes up to about 0.9 within a few minutes and then will stay there forever (well it can get higher, but never lower). This is the load graph after the system runs some time: URL....

I have tried everything I know to find the cultprint but there is no cpu usage and no io usage. I even have disabled the desktop and still have this problem.Also I have tried booting an older Kernel (4.1 and 3.16) with no difference in the load.Here is some information about my system:

Code: Select all¬Ľ uname -a
Linux localhorst 4.2.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.2.3-2 (2015-10-14) x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Debian :: Wired Network Disconnecting When Idle

Jul 29, 2011

I am a newbie when it comes to linux, but know a little (the little bit of dangerous stuff).I have set up a home web server for when I am testing website using PHP, mysql and other funky stuff. This is a reflection of my production server as far as I can with my limited knowledge.I am also using this box to learn more about the Linux operating system and I doing this slowly. Before I installed the GUI (Gnome) I was using a text based server, this was working fine and running absolutey fine and never disconnecting. This has been fine and working 24/7 for around a month.

At the weekend (just gone) I ran the following at terminal
# apt-get install gnome

This gave me a GUI so I could try some other things.

When the computer is idle the network card seems to drop the connection, Im trying to see after how long it does this. I have seen this work fine after an hour, but after a night, the network has been dropped. This is a hard wired connection to the router.first time I thought the PC had froze so rebooted the PC, but the second time, I plugged a mouse into it and noticed the the network icon had changed, after right clicking on it, i noticed that It had dropped the connection. After clicking the "reconnect" option it is back up and running.

Debian Configuration :: 100% CPU Usage While Idle / Workaround It?

Apr 13, 2011

I just installed Debian 6.0 IA64 on my HP zx6000 and it pegs the CPU's when doing absolutely nothing but sitting at the desktop. I searched around on Google and found that there is a bug report: 537572. I was just wondering what the status was on that. Is there currently a fix or workaround?

zx6000 specs: 2 x 1.50GHz Intel Itanium 2 (Madison 6MB), 8GB of PC2100 ECC, 73GB 10kRPM SCSI, NVIDIA Quadro4 900 XGL 128MB.

Debian :: Hard Drives Stay Active / Idle

Dec 28, 2015

I am trying to switch over my NAS from Win7 x64 to Debian 8.x Jessie. I have run into a few issues with the power management. When Idle my NAS should be consuming 25W, however it was consuming much more. The more hard disks I mounted, the higher the wattage.

I have followed a few tutorials but that has only been a partial succes.

Code: Select all # hdparm -C /dev/sd[b-y]

 drive state is:  active/idle

 drive state is:  active/idle

 drive state is:  standby

 drive state is:  active/idle

 drive state is:  standby

All the drives can spindown but they are not doing that now that they are mounted.

Code: Select all/dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_HD103UJ_S13PJ9AQC12015 {
apm = 127
keep_features_over_reset = on
spindown_time = 60


Now there are two suggestions I found but both I was unable to implement.

The first suggestion was to mount using "noatime". However I do not know how to rewrite fstab because I am using ntfs for now (at least untill I get it working).

Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
/dev/mapper/bugattidebian--vg-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1

[Code] .....

Not sure where to add the noatime there...

Also I am using samba on all those drives. This guide suggested a code change but the example does not line up with my configuration script.

Debian Configuration :: Periodic Disk Activity With System Being Idle

Jan 12, 2011

I keep noticing disk activity every roughly 1 to 3 seconds even though there is "nothing" going on. Of course, I run a number of "system" and "user" application packages - Apache2, MySQL, Browsers (Opera, IceWeasel), an SMB client and server, OpenOffice 3.0RC8 being the most prominent ones. I wonder what might be the cause for this constant disk activity which happens even when none of the applications do any noticeable work at all. Is there a way to determine the process that does those disk read/writes?

Debian Configuration :: "Windows Printer Via Samba" Option - Add One By Selecting Add->Printer

Aug 11, 2011

I'm using an up-to-date installation of Squeeze with the default Gnome desktop and am trying to print. My knowledge of configuring printers is very limited if it even exists. Since a friend of mine is able to print from her Ubuntu computer, my plan is to copy her. Here's how she does it. She goes under System->Administration->Printing on the desktop. Then a window pops up titled "Printing" that lists various printers that are supposed to exist. It's possible to add one by selecting Add->Printer. It asks for the root password and then a new window pops up titled "New Printer" which has a subwindow called "Select Device" In my case, the "Select Device" window has the following options to choose from:

- AppSocket/HP JetDirect
- Internet Printing Protocol (ipp)
- LPD/LPR Host or Printer

In her case, she has an extra option called "Windows Printer via Samba". This is the option that she uses. The other options don't seem to work for her. I'm assuming that I just need to install some package in order to make this option magically pop up for me. Does anyone know what package this may be? I currently have the packages smbclient, samba-common and samba-common-bin installed..........

Debian :: Canon Printer - Lp0 - "Printer Not Connected -- Check Your Connection"

Jul 31, 2011

I have a canon printer which was working so far. After my latest upgrade its giving errors saying "Printer not connected -- Check your connection" Fortunately I had a backup of my root before the upgrade and one difference I see is that on the new system theres no /dev/usb/lp0 which there is on the old one. So how do I make it? Or should I use the /dev/lp0? Note they are different:


So (naturally) when I tried to make a softlink from /dev/usb/lp0 to /dev/lp0 it did not work.

Ubuntu :: How Much Battery Time Still Remains

Dec 5, 2010

When I boot without the AC cable plugged in the Power Applet says I am on AC power (but the notebook is of course running on battery power). Which is bad because I don't know how much battery time still remains. Strangely, when I boot on AC Power and then remove the AC cable both the fact that battery power is used and the remaining battery time is shown correctly. Also when I boot into battery power and then plug in the AC cable it correctly shows that the battery is charging and how long it takes until fully charged. I use Ubuntu 10.10, 32bit on an Acer Aspire One 751 if that helps. The problem has also existed in Ubuntu 10.04 and I hoped the update would solve it but it did not.
